Faith Formation

It is not enough to educate a child academically. Catholic Central also educates each student socially, culturally,
physically, and as a Catholic school, spiritually; that is, the total child. The Department of Campus Ministry
seeks to serve the faith formation needs of our student body, faculty, and staff in a variety of ways.

Student Testimonials

“I have been attending CCS for almost two years now. I have had a great time and learned lots of new things in academics and in sports. As soon as I came here I was welcomed to the community. Since then I have met lots of new people that have taught me new things and made me a better person. I am proud to continue my family’s legacy of going to Catholic High. I look forward to continuing to learn and meet new people.”

-Ethan Ayote

“As a new student to CCS I’ve found it to be a great place of learning. I enjoy the amount of support and care I receive from both my peers and the faculty and staff. At my old school I used to be a B- student at best but since my transfer to CCHS I am an A student. I love the school and it was a great choice for me to come here.”

-Gabe Perino

“I am very grateful for my teachers who go out of their way to support me and my classmates. CCS has provided me with many opportunities to take advanced classes and I plan to take advantage of earning college credits through our college in the high school program. CCS has such a welcoming environment that has allowed me to make many amazing friends.”
